Perfect little spot with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic location for our first trip to SB. We had this home for two nights leading up to a Moorpark wedding weekend. The first night family stayed here and the second was a girls night for the bride. This home served both purposes beautifully. It's well appointed, full of charm and instantly makes you feel welcome and relaxed. I was concerned about the one bathroom but even with 6 girls it wasn't an issue. Each of the bedrooms and the hallway have mirrors, which made a world of difference for hair & makeup. We laid in snacks & breakfast foods from nearby Ralph's and enjoyed an enchanting dinner at Zaytoon for girls night. While this home is within walking distance to all you'd want to do on State Street the girls opted for a $5 uber ride due to heels and a chilly temp. Michael was a very accommodating and helpful host. Everything was as described and the hot-tub was wonderful.

Perfect Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family weekend in beautiful Santa Barbara. The location of the house is perfect to navigate both upper and lower State St. shops and restaurants. Although the house is not very big, it is kept in tip top shape and the open living room / kitchen area make it feel bigger than it is. The back patio is a great area to enjoy your morning coffee or unwind at the end of a long day in the jacuzzi. Highly recommended.!

The cottage was absolutely fantastic, and went above and beyond our expectations... Great location, great amenities, clean, and comfortable. We stayed here for our wedding weekend and couldn't have had a better time! We also experienced great communication with the owner, which helped out tremendously during the entire wedding planning process. Thank you so much for everything, we can't wait to stay again!!!

Adorable, comfy house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Michael met us when we arrived and was accommodating to our schedule. The house was clean and comfortable, with everything we needed. We had 6 people and everyone slept comfortably. The hot tub was great too! Finally, the location of this house can't be beat-- walking distance to everything downtown, the Funk Zone, and we even walked to Leadbetter Beach (20 min walk). We would definitely stay here again!

absolute delightful place

  • 5 of 5

i cannot say enough about this delightful cottage. first and foremost michael and his girlfriend were considerate and responsive to all of our needs. more importantly they took the time to meet with us to make sure we understood how everything worked. the cottage is immaculate and very well decorated with al the amenities one could hope for. it is not large, but it is a " cottage", and it suited the four of us quite well. wonderful deck with hot tub and a outdoor shower. we will definitely return.

From the Owner

When I first saw this property I knew I was going to purchase the home because of the location and how beautiful and historic the cottage is. Finding a home for sale that is blocks from Paseo Nuevo Shopping Mall and State Street is very rare; making this investment that more obvious!

From the Owner

Unique benefits is that you can park your car on arrival and walk around the rest of your vacation. Conveniently located in the 'heart' of downtown SB and very close to multiple beaches and the pier and much more. We also have discounts at local businesses so for example, if you like to surf or would like to learn how to surf we can get you a discount at a local business. All you have to do is ask me what discounts you will receive by simply just staying at The SB Cottages.
